Evils Under The Sun, Pt. 2

Esther 3:5-6… “And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath. And he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai: wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai” (KJV).

The Hamans of this world want to rid the land of Christians. Haman’s lust for power led him to use evil methods to destroy God’s people. There is a lot of “plotting and planning” going on in wicked circles today. The battle of Ephesians 6:10-18 is taking place right now. Notice v. 12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (KJV). These “powers” refuse to let Christ have first place. These powers reject the order God has laid down. These powers refuse to submit to Jesus Christ. God is looking for a generation of people who are willing to stand against the evil intentions of evil powers. Notice, Paul said the righteous are to stand. “Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might” (v. 10), not in your might.

Esther 3:1-15… “And the king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city Shushan was perplexed” (v. 15, KJV). Haman wants the righteous  confused, hurt, and without a vision of what to do. Confusion is one of the devil’s biggest weapons. The word “perplexed,” as used here, means “to be entangled.” Confusion blurs your insight. A lot of believers in this nation are without insight into what’s happening in our society. Why? Because there are a lot of “Hamans” in pulpits who have no idea whatsoever of the purposes of God. 1 John 3:8 teaches, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil” (KJV). Esther 4-7 show us that, with God’s help, Mordecai and Esther prevail.

When leaders listen to the righteous whom God has planted in places of authority, laws change. And as for Haman… Esther 7:10 says, “So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified” (KJV). Our generation needs men and women like those written about in Hebrews 11:1-3… “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” The word “worlds” refers to an allotted period of time, such as decades, generations, or centuries. The word “framed” means “taking an existing thing and then altering it by reshaping.”

The idea is this… The righteous men and women of Hebrews 11 received a word from God, acted upon it and changed – i.e., reshaped – society for decades to come. They knew what the will of God was, believed it, and did something about it. Hebrews 11 tells their story. The church should be praying for leaders who can and will stand up in their culture with the power of the Holy Spirit upon them. The results will be, as in Acts 4:13-14, “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. And beholding the man who was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it” (KJV).

Today, it seems that when the righteous speak, the wicked prevail against them. Princes are walking while slaves are riding.

God wants to change that.

Evils Under The Sun

Ecclesiastes 10:5-7… “There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler: Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place. I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth” (KJV).

This present world’s system is designed to put the sinner on the horse and make the righteous walk as slaves. God designed it so His people would be the head and not the tail. Today, it’s a known fact that the criminal, the lawless, and the unconverted have taken God’s people as prey. Those who murder, steal, rob, rape, rage, break into homes, and flaunt immoral lifestyles have made decent people afraid to be out on the street–the wicked are ruling and the righteous live in fear. The wicked are riding; the righteous are walking. The righteous have submitted to the torments of the wicked without so much as a whimper. Once the elderly walked streets safely and children played without fear. There was a time when the nation knew that pornography was wrong and that homosexuality was a grievous sin. There was a time when people kept their word. It’s time for the righteous to get tired of “walking” and cry out to God for boldness and courage to face up to evildoers. The early church in Acts 4:29-31 prayed, “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness” (KJV).

The book of Esther shows us the schemes of the wicked. God positioned Esther and Mordecai in strategic places to rule and give guidance to the political rulers of their day. Today, God is positioning many righteous people in high positions both in business and in government. He is raising up influential righteous preachers to lead the way. However, there are many “Hamans” threatening to destroy God’s people. Psalm 2:1-3 teaches that the heathen are raging. They stand together to reject Jesus Christ. Nations attempt to appease them through compromise, but Psalm 2 teaches that God has ordained His Son to rule and to have dominion.

Esther 3:1… “After these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him” (KJV). The Hamans of this world may make the laws, but it’s Christians who must promote righteousness in the land.

Esther 3:2… “And all the king’s servants, that were in the king’s gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence” (KJV). The Hamans of this world want everyone to bow down to them. It’s in their best interest if they gain control over the behavior of the righteous. The Hamans of this world desire to humiliate righteous people. God’s righteous need to see the evil intent of those who demand “rights” for the lifestyles which are in direct opposition to God’s Word. Righteous men and women don’t usually get elected if they oppose sinful lifestyles. Judges do not get promoted if they go against the wishes of the wicked.  Mordecai refused to bow down to Haman. Mordecai bowed down only to God. This is the position righteous people must take. May God give us the courage to stand. We can’t live in denial… wickedness is out there ready to devour us.

Psalm 72

On October 5th of 2001, I had a dream-vision. The Lord was with me and said to me, “We are in for increased spiritual warfare,” and pointing to a minister that I know, I said, “You will be able to help many.” Since the terrorist attacks against this nation on that fateful morning of September 11th we are seeing warfare, both physical and political, but the greater war is the spiritual warfare. Our nation has changed. We are a different nation now. There is a lot of fear, and we are on the verge of becoming a police state. The battle of the ages is shaping up. The church must awaken. The believers must sharpen their weapons. The world has awakened to the dangers seen in extremist Islamic ideologies. I want to share a short message with you… that the Islamic people will turn to Christ.

Psalm 72:9-11… “Desert nomads will bow before him; his enemies will fall before him in the dust. The western kings of Tarshish and other distant lands will bring him tribute. The eastern kings of Sheba and Seba will bring him gifts. All kings will bow before him, and all nations will serve him” (NLT). The King James Version reads, “They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him and his enemies shall lick the dust.” The “nomads of the desert” were the Arab tribes, the sons of Ishmael. These tribes have now become great nations, nations that live in dry regions. Psalm 72 is talking about the spreading of Christ’s kingdom over all nations. The Lord has purposed to bring a harvest from every tribe and nation. The Islamic peoples will one day acknowledge that Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of God and not Mohammed. The Muslim religion stands firm in their rejection of Jesus as the Son of God. Keep in mind that God loves the Arab nations (see Genesis 16 and Genesis 21).

The Lord in the dream-vision said, “We are in for increased spiritual warfare.” The battle is on, Christian. Take a good look at what the devil is doing, and then see what God will do and is doing. Right now the devil is working, putting fear in people. Fill your life with the works of the Holy Spirit. Proverbs 8:30 teaches that, just as the Holy Spirit was with Jesus as the master craftsman, He will stand beside you as well. If there is a vacuum in your life, pray more. Read and speak aloud the Scriptures. Proverbs 3:25-26 reads, “Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken” (KJV).

Moments Of Truth: The Perizzites

Joshua 3:9-10… “Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God. And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites” (KJV). In our last lesson, we heard about the Hittites who intimidate people with fear tactics. The Hittite spirit attacks when the going gets tough and your way is hard. In this lesson we want to take a look at the Perizzites.

The word “Perizzites” means “unprotected; an unwalled village.” The Perizzite spirit seeks an unguarded opening in your life or an unguarded moment, and it wants to squat there. It can do a lot of damage when we leave an opening unprotected. Ezekiel 38:10-11 says, “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On that day thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme. You [the evil army] will say, ‘I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people–all of them living without walls and without gates and bars” (NIV). Joshua was warning the Israelites that when they enter the land, they were not to let their spirits go unprotected. In other words, don’t get careless or drop your guard. The devil in Job 1:10 watched for an opening in the life of Job, but God protected Job’s person, his job, his family, his possessions, and his influences. These are the areas the Perizzite spirit looks to attack.

Proverbs 25:28 teaches, “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls” (KJV). The enemy comes when you are angry, when your temper gets out of control, when you rage, when you lack faith, when you are depressed, when you criticize, when you gossip, when you lose control of your lusts, and more. What are walls? Our faith is a wall, our emotions are walls, keeping a right spirit (attitude) is a wall, and the way we think is a wall. Prayer, praise, and worship are walls. The Bible is a wall. God is our shield (wall). Proverbs 18:14 says, “A man’s courage can sustain his broken body, but when courage dies, what hope is left” (TLB). The King James says, “The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity, but a wounded spirit who can bear?” Our body and our life are upheld by our spirit. The Perizzite spirit wants you to let your guard down. It wants to take away your courage. Daniel was upheld by an excellent spirit (Daniel 5:12, 6:3). When Paul arrived in Rome, after a tragic sea voyage, he was asked about his frame of mind. “What do you think? How did you put your thoughts together? We want to know why you think and talk the way you do.” Paul talked to them of the kingdom of God and the power of the gospel. The kingdom was in Paul’s spirit. No Perizzite had an entrance there.

Paul wrote to Timothy and said, “The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit” (2 Timothy 4:22, KJV). He wrote to the Galatians and said, “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit” (Galatians 6:18). One of the meanings of the word “grace” is “operational power.” God is concerned with wrong attitudes today. There is a mentality in our society that is wrong. People, both old and young, have opened up their spirit to the Perizzite spirit. The Perizzite spirit wants to separate you and isolate you from what is right and good. The Perizzite spirit operates in lies and innuendoes. Joshua warned the Israelites to guard their spirit and make no opening for it to enter. Paul puts it this way, “Do not leave room for the Devil” (Ephesians 4:27, Weymouth). The news is full of items about people who have been hurt because they let their guard down. How about you, saints? Our enemy is the devil. Stand firm against him. He goes about looking to devour. Your life should be a praise unto God and not “meat” for the devil. Have you unconsciously made an opening? You can close it by first asking God to forgive you. Then ask the Holy Spirit to show you how to build walls of protection. Find a prayer partner… the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:27-28) is the best one to get.

Song Of Solomon: Love Set In Order, Pt. 2

(Part 2 of 5)

The Holy Spirit wants to set our love in order…

Truths from Song of Solomon chapter one… In this chapter alone there are 39 areas where love is out of order, although I will only take a few of them for this lesson. Number 39 in Biblical numerics is the number for disease. Jesus bore 39 stripes for our healing; there are 39 books in the Old Testament that cannot meet man’s need. Song of Solomon 1:1-8…

Verse 1… “The song of songs, which is Solomon’s” (KJV). This was Solomon’s personal song, a song that prophecies of the bridegroom and the bride (Christ and the church). I was reading this one day and the Spirit stopped me and said, “My people are not singing. They have no song in their heart. They hear a lot of singing but it’s from outside of them [choirs, soloists, radio, stereo]. I want My people to have a singing spirit.” The Lord wants you to have your own personal song. Isaiah 54:1 says, “Sing, O barren [one].” Singing lifts up your spirit, it removes your heaviness, it sets you free, it gives you hope. Singing gives you freedom. If your heart is not singing, your love may be out of order. Freshness often comes through the prophetic singing in our own hearts. Many Christians have lost their joy, and with it their song. Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16 exhort us to “[make] melody in your heart” and ”[sing] with grace in your hearts.” Proverbs 29:6 reads, “The righteous doth sing and rejoice.” 

Verse 2… Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine (KJV). I was praying one day while studying Song of Solomon, and I said to the Spirit, There is something more in this verse than a young lady looking at some hunk and desiring his kisses. The Spirit said to me, “This is nothing else but a desire to be ruled by the word that comes from his mouth.” What a revelation. The believer here had caught a revelation of a higher love. Most Christians desire love and desire to be ruled by the word that comes by the Holy Spirit. The spirit of man is the part of us that touches the Lord, and it’s the part of us that the Lord touches. Matthew 4:4 teaches, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (KJV; see also Deuteronomy 8:3).

I looked high and low for a confirmation of what the Spirit said to me until I found an old writing on the Song of Solomon that was over three hundred years old, and the author said of verse two, “The kiss of His mouth . . . extends to nothing less than the communication of the Word of God to the soul(Madame Guyon, Song of Songs of Solomon). The Shulamite saw in the king the ability to express love through words. Love is a strong desire, and right words can bring fulfillment. The word kiss means “to catch fire, to rule, to touch, to equip with weapons.” The word mouth as used here symbolizes sayings or words. The Shulamite was saying, “I want to be ruled by the words that come from his mouth.” If this is not your desire, your love is out of order. Not all believers are hungry for words that come from the mouth of the Holy Spirit, but today, many believers are crying out, “Lord, rule me with words that come from your mouth.” The word kiss also suggests warfare. The Shulamite was well aware of the warfare she was getting into when she chose to be ruled by the king. The word that comes from the Lord often plunges us into battle. The devil will fight you. Your family will fight you. The world will fight you. If your love is out of order, the Holy Spirit wants to help you today. He wants your spirit to catch fire for the words that come from the mouth of the Lord.

Verse 2 also teaches, “For thy love is better than wine” (KJV). Wine is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. It is also a symbol of Communion, representing the blood of Jesus. Wine is a symbol of joy. If you have no joy, your love is out of order. Jesus said that the end times will be full of sorrow (Matthew 24:8). We see it all around us. There is a need for joy in the land. Jesus is the healer of broken hearts. Wine can be purchased but Jesus’ love cannot. Jesus chose to love us with agape (unconditional) love. His love outlasts everything else and it stands when everything else has failed. If Jesus is not your joy, your love may be out of order. Jesus said in John 16:24“That your joy may be full.”  

Verse 3… Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee” (KJV). The Shulamite was expressing another strong desire, the desire to come under the authority of the king’s name. There was a need to belong. She wanted identity; she want to be under a covering. His name had penetrated her spirit. His name must penetrate our spirit as well. The name of Jesus has a fragrance. In 2 Thessalonians 2:8, Paul uses the word “brightness,” which means “appearing, manifestation, glorious display.” Paul was teaching that the Lord’s appearance destroys the devil. The name of Jesus is like an ointment. Ointment has a fragrance. It soothes your spirit. If you love the name of Jesus, the enemy of your soul stays out of your way. The name of Jesus should not be an embarrassment to us. If the name of Jesus embarrasses you, your love is out of order. Jesus has a name that is higher than any other name (Philippians 2:9-10). Proverbs 18:10 says, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” If the name of Jesus has lost its savor in you, your love is out of order.

We Are Children Of The Kingdom

Matthew 13:36-42…Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” (KJV).

Jesus said we are children of the kingdom of God. As soon as the word of the kingdom is planted in the heart, forces of the devil will want to snatch it away. The wicked will do anything to bring a child of the kingdom to defeat. Job 16:9 reads, “He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me” (KJV). Children of the kingdom will be bombarded with false doctrine, persecution, cults, false leaders, false prophesies, and more. The world is not a friendly place. Jesus said in John 15:18-19“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (KJV). In these last days, the devil will try with all his power to deceive the children of the kingdom, just as he deceives the world. Revelation 12:9… “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world.” The children of the kingdom can overcome the devil. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” (v. 11). Before Jesus started His ministry, He had a serious encounter with the devil. Jesus showed the devil the power of the rhema Word and He used that Word as a weapon to stand against the devil. Jesus can show you how to use the written Word. Plant the Word in your mind. Keep it there and it will be there to meet any test the devil may throw your way.

We are the children of the kingdom and we have authority to withstand the devil. Mark 16:17-18… “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (KJV). Proverbs 18:10 reads, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”

We are the children of the kingdom and we do face tribulation (pressures). And yes, we can find peace in times of pressure. John 16:33 reads, These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (KJV). Many people misunderstand the word “tribulation.” This word means “pressure, affliction, anguish, being burdened, persecution, troubles.” These are things we face as the children of the kingdom. Whenever a believer is weak, he or she can find divine strength. Isaiah 40:28-31 reads, “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Paul teaches that tribulation cannot separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:35-39). 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 teaches, “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (KJV). Tribulation also prepares us to receive the crown of life. Revelation 2:10… “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” The ten days that we read about in these verses may refer to the ten edicts or laws that the Roman leaders enacted against the children of the kingdom. The early believers had pressures. We may see some of these pressures return in our days. Some folks equate the word “tribulation” with the seven years of Jacob’s (Israel, the people of God) trouble at the end of this age. A friend of mine was dwelling on this, and the Lord spoke to him and said, “Don’t dwell on Jacob’s troubles. Dwell on Jacob’s blessings” (See Genesis 27:28-29; Psalm 47:4, 78:5, 146:5, Isaiah 2:3, 41:8). Don’t see pressures. See the blessings that are ours (Ephesians 1:3).

We are the children of the kingdom. Don’t let the devil choke out the word that God gave you.

You Did What You Were Called To Do And All Hell Broke Loose

Have you ever wondered why the devil attacks you after doing a good work or after experiencing a victory? What is it that so upsets the devil that he rises up to resist you? If you are doing God’s will, why are you experiencing hassles and difficulties along the way? This is what we want to talk about. Paul said, “Do not give the devil an opportunity” (Ephesians 4:27, NASB).

2 Timothy 1:11-12… “Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day” (KJV). Notice Paul’s calling as preacher, apostle, and teacher. Your calling may be different, whether it’s as worship leader, usher, businessman, doctor, etc. Notice the phrase, “for the which cause I also suffer these things.” The word “suffer” here means “to suffer as the result of outside forces,” or circumstances outside of you. It could refer to persecution, it could refer to anguish due to extra pressures, or it could refer to a car accident or a job loss. It could be family problems or financial problems too.

When Paul wrote this book, he was experiencing demonic attacks. Paul was in prison awaiting his execution. He was accused of crimes that he did not commit. When the devil couldn’t find a way to destroy Paul, he manipulated outside forces against him and his ministry. Because Paul was a preacher, apostle, teacher, and a threat to the devil’s kingdom, the devil orchestrated outside pressures. In your case, maybe the furnace went out, maybe the engine light came on in your car, perhaps the flu hit your household. The devil was terrified of Paul’s calling. He is terrified of your calling too. The devil didn’t want the gospel to progress any further. He didn’t want people helped by the power of the Holy Spirit. He was scared stiff of the enormous things that would happen if Paul had no opposition. In like manner, if your call came from God and you are fulfilling that call, the devil is scared of what you can do. The devil loves to slow people down and to discredit their testimony. The devil does not like the call of God on your life.

Paul learned to commit his life to Jesus. He was never defeated by Satanic attacks (these attacks were his “thorn in the flesh”; see 2 Corinthians 12:1-10). He made a decision not to stop what he was doing. He had the attitude that, if God gave it to him to do, he would finish it (Philippians 3:12). Likewise, the only way that you will be able to resist the devil is to keep serving God with determination that you will endure until the very end. Never stop doing what God has called you to do! When you endure to the end, you will receive your reward (Matthew 24:13). Of course, no one can successfully resist the devil without the power of the Holy Spirit. That power works in people who have resolve. The Holy Spirit works with people who are determined to finish what God has called them to do. The Holy Spirit delights to work with God’s people. There are many things the devil can try to do to elbow us out of the race, but you are the only one who can decide to quit or to go on. Some of you are discouraged and tired, because the demonic attacks never seem to end. Keep doing the work of God. Hard economic times are upon us all–the nation is hurting, families are hurting, and crime is rampant. Remember this from Romans 8:35-39, that there is no problem that can stop God from loving you when you hurt. There is nothing that the devil can create to stop your call. God can handle anything that the devil throws up at Him… and so can you.

You are a conqueror. The Bible says so.
